I’ve had a story in my head for years. When my mother died, I decided to write it down as a way to expend the energy of my grief. Once the story was written, I had the idea to score it and thus, this album was born.

This is a story about a traveler, their last moments alive, and finding what’s most important to them during their last moments of life: their family. At its opening, our traveler is determined--practical and measured, intent on survival. When they come to realize that this is not possible, our traveler comes to accept the inevitability of death and desires to make the time that remains meaningful. In their last moments and beyond, they are reunited with memories of their family.

Life of a Leaf is dedicated to my mother, because making it has given me the opportunity to understand what it means for her to be gone. This is her requiem.
